Memoir Mania

revealed in the memoir by Leon Panetta
the truth is less venal, you really should know
he took up the pen just to make heaps of dough

This trail of betrayal goes back to Bob Gates
who once helped the prez sail through al Qaeda straits
but then thought it ducky on quitting his post
to swear Barak’s strategy was from the start toast

who made some hard choices with nary a fuss
then wrote a tome tossing O’ under the bus

cause rumors all say the next print bombshell
will be by an insider code named Michelle

Currently, he is holed up in his Massachusetts office trying to pen the perfect bio, which he plans to share as soon as he stops laughing at the sheer futility of this effort.
